Tip of the Week: The Only Feature Android Oreo Is Missing Is the Cream Filling

Tip of the Week: The Only Feature Android Oreo Is Missing Is the Cream Filling

The latest version of Android, Oreo (version 8.0), was released earlier this year. Has your phone received the update to it yet? Either way, you’ll want to know what features it has, including how it can help you get more done. Here are five of the many new additions offered by this update to Android Oreo operating system.

Auto-populate Passwords for Apps
Using your smartphone applications rather than a browser-based application has various advantages, but only recently has Google allowed users to automatically fill in password fields in anything outside its Chrome browser (with the exception of LastPass users). You can now use it to store passwords for applications that you access frequently, which will surely save you some time when using them.

Picture in Picture
A video conference on your mobile device used to limit what you could do with it. What if you wanted to open an email or collect information from another application? Ordinarily you would have to close the app briefly before reopening it, but now you can simply press the home button, which starts up Chrome’s picture-in-picture mode. This can let you continue your video call while collecting information, taking notes, or looking something up.

Brand New Emojis
We know what you’re thinking--the world could use even more emojis. Although there is hardly any practical use for emojis in the business environment, Android Oreo presents mobile device users with even more of the little images to help them augment their communications. Which of the new emojis is your favorite?

Smart Text Select
The desktop keyboard shortcuts, like the Select Text, Copy, and Paste functions, are incredibly valuable for work purposes. Oreo has managed to increase their functionality even further by implementing a Smart Text Select feature on Android smartphones. It’s much easier to use than dragging your finger along the screen to highlight text.

Snooze Notifications
Chances are that your device blows up with notifications frequently throughout the day, but you don’t always want to check what each of them are at that particular moment. In cases like this, you can use Android Oreo’s capability to snooze notifications. All you have to do is swipe to the right on the notification until a clock icon starts up. Next, select the time that you want the notification to appear. You’ll be able to get back to business and check those notifications at the designated time.
